Gabapentin and heart disease

Common Questions and Answers about Gabapentin and heart disease


Avatar f tn The other day, I went to a Christmas party and left the gabapentin at home, so I missed a dose. I got a horrible stomach ache that night and was miserable. The next day, I took the medicine, and the stomach aches are gone. i also have gotten weird vision problems when I accidentally miss a dose. The little packet that came with my medicine said there can be vision changes and GI problems if you stop taking the medicine completely without medical advice.
Avatar f tn I am a bit worried about taking Gabapentin.....if it starts to work, and I think it might be.....(which is awesome for the day to day life), but when you're not in pain, you can forget that something is wrong! Im worried that I won't push for an answer as hard and/or something will get missed! I don't want to take this band-aid treatment for the rests of my life.....I want to get better!
Avatar n tn My heart goes out to you and I wish you all the luck in the world in your return to health. (Yes. Stated as strong fact, and not a wispy maybe.) Courage you already have in spades, and perseverance. So may the good luck pour down!
Avatar f tn There are dangers with allergies to this drug, and also shouldn't be used if you have kidney, liver or heart disease. It can also cause mood or behavior changes, anxiety, depression, or feelings of agitation, hostility, restlessness, hyperactivity, or have thoughts about suicide or hurting yourself. I don't think I'd mess with it especially when going into wd's and detoxing, which can cause alot of those symtoms as well. Too great of a risk of increasing any or all of those symtoms.
Avatar f tn Medications offered can include the immunosuppressant prednisone, intravenous gamma globulin (IVIG), anticonvulsants such as gabapentin or gabitril and antiviral medication, amongst others, according to the underlying cause. In some cases, rocking the head from side to side will painlessly remove the "pins and needles" sensation in less than a minute. A tingly hand or arm is often the result of compression in the bundle of nerves in the neck.
Avatar f tn ) The problem is while Mandelamine, and the BP and Heart meds and Gabapentin are covered, the Vesicare is NOT COVERED and it is approx. $179.00 for 3 month supply. WHICH OF COURSE ON A FIXED DISABILITY INCOME, I CAN NOT AFFORD! Without these med, my timing will continue to decrease and I will back in the vicious cycle of having the stents every 6 weeks or so again. Why would that medicine NOT be covered?
Avatar f tn Hank did not do well on gabapentin--it made him anxious and unsteady, and as far as I could tell, it didn't seem to help his pain. It is possible that it might not have worked for Ruby either. I also entered what I call "constructive" shock on the day I made the decision to let Hank go. It helped me remain as calm as possible then, though I felt as if it couldn't all be real--especially because the euthanasia process did not go well.

Meniere's Disease can exhibit symptoms similar to the symptoms of Chiari Malformation. A hearing test with an Electronystagmography (VNG) test should be able to give a definitive DX of Minears. I was first treated for Minears Disease by my GP because my symptoms were those of MD however when I had an MRI scan it was found that CM was my problem.

Avatar f tn always have had multiple side effects. Things like heart palpitation's, anziety and vision troubles. I can take xanax and Soma with no problems. My question is "could it be the Armour Thyroid that I take that causes the trouble?" I also have a movement disorder labeled as tremors/non-epileptic seizures which also gets worse with antidepressants. The neurotin and gabapentin which should help cause me to stumble and get blurred vision.

Avatar m tn When you lack magnesium-even with a low deficiency- the heart cannot control the electrical signals and the heart starts to beat faster. Other associated symptoms that caused me to suspect low magnesium are: difficulty going to sleep, confusion, muscle spasms. 2. Acid Reflux. Are you on a Acid Blocker or Proton Pump Inhibitor? If on these types of meds with low acid, you have a serious issue with your meds. Chances may be that you will never improve. far too many health consequences.
Avatar n tn She has all the same symptoms that you do and has been diagnosed with connective tissue disease. Her tendons and other connective tissues are hard and crackle and she is in a lot of pain. Her appointment is in Tucson with Dr. Howe - just in case you can go in that direction. I wish you all the best and hope that you are able to get a diagnosis soon. The medical professionals can be so stubborn and "know it all" sometimes.

Avatar f tn So for me, I'm on Vitamin E, Mogadon, and Predmisolome to help my Gabapentin withdrawal symptoms and I think it's helping so far but I'll only be sure of that once I get a good night's worth of rest which I haven't gotten in about 2 months. Good luck to who ever is reading this. You are not alone. These brain zaps almsot drove me to suicide and I am hoping that getting off the Gabapentin and taking these withdrawal meds will help. Wish me luck and good luck to you as well.

1669035 tn?1303499346 My brothers have all had heart attacks and quadruple bypasses, and my sister has had many heart attacks due to stress and some bouts with cancer that were not malignant. I have a lot of stress in my life and I have been trying to take control of it, but lately all I can do is cry. My main doctor is a military doctor. I have never been more than a number to any of them there.

1451338 tn?1413478623 I got some bloodwork results back today. I guess my ANA was positive, but it's non-specific and in a speckled pattern (whatever that means). My question is: is there any correlation between auto-immune markers and chiari? Thank you!

Avatar f tn Magnetic Resonance Venograpy or MRVs are used to assess abnormalities in the blood vessels of patients with a history of stroke, aneurysm, heart disease, and atherosclerotic vascular disease. This would indeed help rule out any doubts on the white spot found on your MRI result. Hang on and stay positive always. Take care and hope to hear about the MRV results.
